Testimonial

Why Mega Test Prep?

When I first went inside, I was amazed by the learning environment. The students were studying hard and attentive in class, but looked so happy. Following a long talk with the counselor, I was given an essay to write and a SAT diagnostic test to complete. After that, my results were analyzed and I was assigned to a level for each of the three sections: critical reading, grammar, and math. In the classes sorted out by levels, students were given all the aid they needed. Classes were taught at a pace that ensured true learning and clear understanding of any confusions students may have had. Instead of teaching random test techniques, teachers helped students develop skills that could be applied directly on the test as well as in everyday life. For critical reading, I learned how to identify passage types, understand passage organization, find the opinions and supporting examples, and so much more. For grammar, I learned how certain grammar structures worked, the rules, the tenses, what was on the test and what wasn’t on the test but still should be understood. For math, I absorbed techniques and methods that allowed me to solve questions faster but ensured accurate answers. All in all, the classes gave me skills that I could apply on the test, in school, and even in the future. The teachers were engaging while teaching the material, keeping the class lively.
